Renée Green è un’artista, scrittrice e film-maker nota per le sue installazioni multimediali dal carattere complesso e stratificato, in cui idee, percezioni ed esperienze sono esaminate da una miriade di prospettive. Mediante film, saggi e scritti di altra natura, installazioni, architetture, lavori con media digitali, lavori sonori, film in serie e eventi il suo lavoro indaga i sistemi di relazione e di scambio avvenuti nel corso del tempo: le lacune e i cambiamenti di ciò che sopravvive nella memoria pubblica e privata, così come ciò che è stato immaginato e inventato.

Le mostre, i video e i film di Green sono stati esposti nei musei ed nelle istituzioni di tutto il mondo. Tra questi: MAK Center for Art + Architecture Schindler House, West Hollywood; Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art e New Museum, New York; Musée cantonal des Beaux Arts, Losanna; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; National Maritime Museum, Greenwich; Jeu de Paume, Parigi; Portikus, Francoforte; Centro Cultural de Bélem, Lisbona; Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcellona; Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati; Vienna Secession; Stichting de Appel, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Museum Ludwig, Colonia; MACBA, Barcellona; Centre Georges Pompidou, Parigi; Institute of Contemporary Art, Londra; Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; International Center of Photography, New York e Louisiana Museum of Art, Copenhagen. Il suo lavoro è stato presentato nelle biennali di Venezia, Johannesburg, Kwangju, Berlino, Sevilla e Istanbul, alla Whitney Biennal, a Documenta 11 e a Manifesta 7.

Le sue più recenti pubblicazioni includono Other Planes of There: Selected Writings (2014, Duke University Press, Durham), Endless Dreams and Time-Based Streams (2010, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco) e Ongoing Becomings (2009, Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Losanna).

Renée Green is an artist, writer, and filmmaker known for her highly layered and formally complex multimedia installations in which ideas, perception, and experience are examined from myriad perspectives.
